July 14, 2021
The service provider expects to pass an additional 304,000 potential customers this year between the two multi-year FTTH deployments.

Following up on its plans to double down of fiber post-bankruptcy, Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FYBR) has announced plans to deploy fiber to the home (FTTH) infrastructure in Connecticut and Texas. The service provider expects to pass an additional 304,000 potential customers this year between the two multi-year FTTH deployments.

Most of those potential new FTTH customers are in Connecticut, where Frontier expects to pass 280,000 consumers. Deployments have begun in Andover, Ansonia, Bethel, Bloomfield, Bolton, Branford, Bridgeport, Bristol, Cheshire, Coventry, Danbury, Derby, East Haven, Enfield, Farmington, Hamden, Hartford, Hebron, Manchester, Marion, Meriden, Middletown, Middletown , Milford, New Britain, New Haven, New London, Newington, North Haven, Norwalk, Norwich, Plainville, Plantsville, Quaker Hill, Rockfall, Shelton, Southington, Stamford, Trumbull, Uncasville, Vernon, Rockville, Wallingford, Waterford, West Hartford, West Haven, Wethersfield, and Woodbridge.

In Texas, this year’s targeted 24,000 consumers are all in San Angelo, including the communities of Angelo Heights, College Hills, Blackshear, Bluffs, Bonham, Central, Fort Concho, Lake View, Reagan, Riverside, Southland, Santa Rita, and Sunset. In both states, Frontier plans to use the new FTTH infrastructure to support delivery of the company’s Frontier FiberOptic Internet, which includes gigabit broadband options for residential customers. A slate of business services will be made available as well. Frontier is promising no annual commitment requirements or data cap and is waiving the normal $85 activation fee.

“This infrastructure investment stems from Frontier’s belief that access to high-speed broadband is critical to building a digital society, enhancing community inclusion, and helping the environment,” commented Julie Murtagh, senior vice president of Frontier’s Connecticut operations. “I am confident communities will see Frontier in a new way once they experience the power of fiber-optic technology.”
